I'm a native Bulgarian, I am fluent in Bulgarian, Russian and English and I've been living in the UK since 2006.

I am reliable, punctual, customer oriented, with excellent work ethics.

I have done translating and interpreting between English, Bulgarian and Russian clients such as: medical, social services and welfare texts and interpretations for clients in the UK, USA and Canada; for insurance companies in UK and USA, for HMRC, Department of Work and Pension, Her Majesty Prisons, Immigration, Law, Police and other bodies in UK, New York City Housing Authority, Airlines, VISA, Transportation etc. I am also a TermWiki translator My services: = INTERPRETING (oral - in person or over the phone):


= PROOFREADING: to eliminate typographical, spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors in the final version of your English texts.

The goal of proofreading is to make sure there are no errors in the final version of a text.

As a proofreader, I read an edited text to identify and correct typographical, punctuation and spelling errors and minor grammatical problems. The text is already well organized and understandable with easily correctable errors. It does not require rewriting or reorganization.

Some people refer to proofreading as checking, reviewing, or "fixing the English."

= EDITING: to address matters of content, style, grammar, syntax, and clarity to ensure your text is written in perfect and comprehensible English.

There are two main types of editing: Basic or Copy Editing and Intensive Editing.

Basic Copy Editing

As with proofreading, a basic copy edit will correct typographical, punctuation, spelling and minor grammatical errors, but goes further to correct word usage and sentence structure, clarify content and check internal consistency and basic formatting. Again, the text is already well written and organized, and requires no rewriting.

Some people refer to this as light editing or copy editing (also written "copyediting" or "copy-editing"), and again, as "fixing the English."

Intensive Editing

An intensive edit begins with a basic copy edit but is more extensive, dealing with the substance of the text as well as the words. I rework confusing and awkward writing and, if necessary, reorganize content and structure to achieve clarity of subject, logic and consistency.

Sometimes referred to as line editing, substantive, content or structural editing or moderate to heavy (copy) editing.

If you have any queries, please contact me directly and I'll be happy to answer all your questions.
